A very informative and interesting course, Tony and Rosie both put you at ease and makes learning a pleasure.

Mick Scothern

A massive thank you for helping me pass my city & guilds 2079 category 1. You’re expert training advice and the way you break the course down makes failing pretty much impossible. Apart from that you’re friendly manner and patience and you’re warm welcome is a credit to you & you’re company. You’re onsite training centre is ideal and the relaxed atmosphere removes any nerves & tension I would have had from a classroom style environment. I honestly believe I would have struggled elsewhere but with you’re help & extensive experience & you’re one to one tuition I got a pass mark of 90%. Please pass my thanks on to Rose for all the tea and lovely fresh lunches she made me during my time with you, your accommodation is exceptional and so convenient it’s a no brainer, why go elsewhere. My only regret is I passed to quickly as I could of stayed a few more nights.


An awesome experience

To Tony and Rose. Thank you so much for your kind support and helping us both pass the F-gas.

Top tutor, kind people, awesome experience, highest recommendation, number one.

Dannyboy and Pushbike.

Candidate takes 2 day crash course during a weekend.

I have recently completed an F Gas Course with your Company and thought I would drop you a line to express my thoughts.

From the moment I made contact I was made to feel at home , I was sent the course information, what to study first, location of course , and information as where I could stay , the day came round very quickly and I turned up on time, I was made to feel at home straight away, then it was straight into the course test papers one after another (would have been harder if I had not read and studied the information supplied) ,the day went quickly but I was drained by the end of it, it was then back to my hotel to look over my notes and to study a bit more .

When I arrived the next day everything was ready and I took my theory test followed by a practical assessment.

When you are taking the test take as much time as you need and if you have to go over the questions again this way you might be able to correct a mistake as it is nerve racking experience.

I would like to say it was hard but as the instructor was so helpful it made it so much easier, the hospitality was very good there was nothing they would not do to help .

If I was to recommend a Company this would be the one, very professional from start to finish.

Thank you for all your help I do not think I would have passed without this and the dedication shown

Bruce Rule

I’d just like to say thank you for this week, not only was the hospitality brilliant but you made two hard courses seem easy, you put me at ease immediately and I’ve come away feeling very confident. Please pass on my appreciation to Rose and wish Rosie luck with her future.

Hi to Tony and Rose,

A big thank you for everything during my attendance on a recent City and Guilds 2079 F Gas course at your premises. I must complement you on the way the course was presented, and that you identified specific areas that I needed to improve on, and tailored the course content to suit me.
I would definitely recommend you to anyone who needs to enhance their knowledge and skills to obtain this universally recognised qualification.

Thank you again, and all the best for the future.

From next to no knowledge to a fully qualified f gas engineer in a matter of days.. What more can one want..? An excellent experience and huge savings for life on repair bills, all thanks to Tony Muxlow Developments Ltd.!


I would like to say thank you on your excellent F-gas training course last week.

I’m still amazed at how a novice has managed a 100% pass mark, which I am truly pleased about. This is a credit to your teaching ability and to your vast knowledge.

And if you could also give Rose a big thank you for her lovely meals,

Dan Chaston (Mcintyre electrics)

I would just like to thank you for the great day on friday, me and lee was very impressed at how the course was put together and we both thought you were great at getting across the information.

I now feel very confident working on hydrocarbon systems.

Louis and Lee.

Just to say massive thank for this week, I really enjoyed the course one of the best I have been on, and my successful grades were down to your brilliant tuition and Rose’s supply of tea and food that kept the grey matter going !.

I have learned such a lot in such a short space of time and will be certainly recommending you wherever possible in the future. all the best and I hope Rosie has a speedy recovery

Roy (No I’m TONY) Warburton

Candidate Matt Walters complete 4 courses in 9 days including the F-Gas 2079.

I work in a school full time but have always had an interest in refrigeration systems, air conditioning etc, I looked online and found Tony Muxlow Develpments, I  chose this company above anyone else due to his over 30 year experience and fact it was one to one training which was much better for me.

 I initially enrolled on the 2079 f-gas and thanks to Tony passed the exam with over 90%, I enjoyed my time with Tony and Rose during the week and decided to take 3 other courses as I realized they would be a major advantage to me .   Automotive, air conditioning, Hydrocarbons and the industry standard pipe work and brazing.

Tony and I now have a good friendship and he will always go out of his way to help me with any queries that I may have. Thanks to Tony I now have my own company and a lot more confidence in what I can do. I highly recommend Tonys  professional services to anyone.


I Just want to say a big thank you for the 2079 FGas course.

When we first came as complete novices not knowing anything at all about any refrigeration you made myself and Tim very comfortable and welcome both to you and your wife (she does make great sandwiches by the way). It made us feel very at ease and to do the exams and get a pass on day 4 can only be down to you and your teaching skills.

Again We wish to thank you and you wonderful wife for everything you have done and for what we have achieved.

John and Tim

Facilities and staff were outstanding. Trainer was knowledgeable and dealt with individual needs well would recommend to anyone

Sam Care

Course was extremely useful, Tony the instructor was very knowledgeable and helped me better my basic skills in F gas as well as shown me how to deal with HC.

Would definitely recommend this to others, good equipment, good classroom and a great tutor, all around a good day learning!


Candidate failed 7 times at another training centre

Hi Tony, Just wanted to drop you email to thank you for helping me get my F-gas.

Having been to another national training centre and failed the f-gas exam 7 times. I was amazed that after spending less than 24 hrs training with you was not only able to pass but with a score of 92.5%.

I will be certainly recommending you and looking forward to more training from yourself.

Also thanks to your wife for all the food and drinks and good luck to your daughter passing her f-gas at least gaining 100%.

Tony Clifton

An excellent hands on experience – Thank You !

I don’t write feedback often, but in my case I have got to say that my experience of the 7543-1 Refrigerant Handling with Mr. Tony Muxlow on a one-to-one on a Saturday has got to be one of the best days I have ever had!

I found that the balance between the knowledgeable in-depth concise theory and the hands on experience was just so right.

In fact, I must add that although the refrigeration handling course covers the practical hands on (safe) transfer of refrigerant cylinder to cylinder, Tony went the extra mile above and beyond the course content. This was achieved by going through the full process of a full refrigerant recovery, evacuation and measured refrigerant recharge on a Renault Van.

I can’t echo enough what others have said about the friendliness of Tony and Rose.
The ‘Perfect Cup of tea’ and Sandwiches really hit the spot.

To say I enjoyed my day is an understatement, and I look forward to dealing with Tony again very soon on the other courses he provides.

Thank you!

Hi Tony

I would like to pass on my thanks for an enjoyable and ultimately beneficial time with you. The one to one training is impressive as were the results after a very short time.

Before I came, I was apprehensive as I hadn’t been in the trade for quite a few years. In fact before I came, I would have been happy with scraping a pass.

To gain a pass of 97.5% on the 3rd day was unbelievable. I would certainly recommend you to anyone who needs F gas qualifications.


I would like to thank you for one of the most enjoyable courses I’ve ever been on. I had a great time and learned a lot in such a short time. I really enjoyed your style of teaching and I have no hesitation in recommending Tony Muxlow Developments Ltd. to my fellow colleagues. Please thank Rose again for the lovely hospitality, it was great to meet her too.

John ‘Tony’ Barratt

Dear Tony & Rose,

When I read your advertisement on the internet offering refrigeration qualifications I jumped at the opportunity.

For many years, I have been in the ice cream sales business and at the mercy of some very incompetent fridge engineers charging high prices for poor work.

I kept an open mind when you claimed you would train me up to pass the ‘F’ gas course in 5 days. This involved practical and theory but after speaking to you I realised that with my past experiences it was a no brainer I had to do it.

I must also say, I found your approach and hospitality very refreshing and enjoyed the course immensely. Full credit to you and Rose for making me feel at home with excellent food and drink, but the biggest bonus was passing the exam. All in all a very good result and a new friendship that I feel will benefit both of us in the years to come. I will keep in touch and have no hesitation in recommending you to prospective fridge engineers

I said I’d be back ! After the enjoyable experience I had previously of the 7543-1 Refrigerant Handling with Mr. Tony Muxlow I was determined to expand on my knowledge of Refrigeration. The next natural step of progression was to undertake the City and Guilds 2079 F-GAS course.

The City and Guilds 2079 F-GAS course was indeed a lot harder than the 7543-1 Refrigerant Handling course, as there is a lot of detail to absorb at first glance (, as I’m not a Refrigeration Engineer by profession).

However, over the days, Tony broke this down into “bite-sized chunks”, and with his unique style and approach, helped visualise the process and theory of operation. The practical hands-on training utilising his refrigeration test rigs aided immensely, and was the most fun part of the course.

Exam day was daunting as I wanted to do my best for myself (and Tony), so after obtaining a 100% result, saying I was over the moon was an understatement in itself. You’ll have to experience the exam to fully appreciate the 100% Pass that Rosie Muxlow obtained too!

Theory is always one thing, practical another, but this practical felt natural after the days of guidance received from the ideal Training room environment at Tony’s.

Again, I left the whole experience with enjoyment and satisfaction and I’m looking forward to installing my own Air conditioning unit in my own home.

Thank you again Tony, I’ll be back again soon for sure!

Candidate passes the F-gas 2079 and explains how.

I chose Tony as I had previously completed other courses with him in 2002, I find his teaching method brilliant, he has the patience of a saint and his ability to explain things that are really difficult to understand, I will be using him many more times.

I was concerned about doing the course as writing and reading are not my strong point but Tony put my worries to one side, his teaching methods were totally designed around myself. He always made sure I fully understood each point before going onto to another category. I would go to my hotel each night shower, eat, sleep, wake up in the middle of the night and revise as he had the confidence in me and I didn’t want to let him down.

The hospitality was great; I was looked after very well. Thank you Rose for the coffee and sandwiches..

I would like to say it was hard but as the instructor was so helpful it made it so much easier, the hospitality was very good there was nothing they would not do to help .

As I have explained reading and writing are not my strong point, but Tony’s teaching methods warranted the three hour drive to his centre as I had full confidence in the fact he would find a way of teaching me what I thought impossible to learn, and he did. I felt so confident after my test result that I decided to take the AC test, with Tony’s teaching methods he makes anything possible.

RE:   2 Day F-Gas Intensive Training Course (inc Exam). 6th November 2014

Thank you for your superb professional tuition. The training was indeed intensive,
but also enjoyable, adding to my knowledge of refrigeration & more importantly, you got me through the extremely difficult final exam with flying colours.

I initially thought that I would not need any training, but after talking to yourself on the phone, I accepted your advice to have at least one day training and another if needed.

When it came to the actual exam, my mind went blank, I then recalled and relied on Tony’s superb advice on how to proceed in a relaxed manor, with a shockingly good final result of an above average 87.5%.

I researched ALL the other training places, and I definitely picked the best one, saving myself time and money.

M Perry

We bought an ice cream van with no knowledge of the business and kept having problems with our refrigeration and machine. Spent a fortune on repairs.

We learnt of Tony Muxlow’s courses. We arranged to do the basic refrigeration course and soft machine maintenance and installation. We were both total beginners but found the courses very easy to understand as all course work was hands on.

We can now do all our own maintenance on soft machine and install a new machine if we needed. Also we can re-gas our refrigeration units if needed.

Tony is very easy to get along with and easy to understand.

We would recommend his courses to anyone even people who think they know alot about ice cream vans. You can learn loads of stuff from tony. He is Ace.

Thanks tony for your patience and knowledge.
